FTC Disclosure:This post is a paid post in collaboration with UncommonGoods. My full Disclosure Policy is here.

Unique Mother's Day Gifts collage from UncommonGoods

UncomonGoods is my go-to for unique and uncommon gifts.

I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for more than 10 years – and the recipients of any gifts I buy through them are always delighted. All of the items they sell are handmade, and they are dedicated to featuring products that contain recycled components and have not sold products containing leather, feathers or fur. Besides being a founding member of B Corporation (click to see how cool this organization is!), UncommonGoods even lets you choose a nonprofit at checkout for them to donate $1 to with every order. They have a great selection of personalized gifts as well (see here) or gifts for all of those baby showers you’ll be attending this season (here). And who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive any one of these keepsakes for celebrating a milestone or anniversary?

Review: Beautiful Proflowers Bouquets for Mother’s Day

FTC Disclosure: I was provided with a complimentary bouquet of my choice from ProFlowers.com. The below opinions are my own. I have not been otherwise compensated for this post. My full Disclosure Policy is here.


Though Mother’s Day is about a month away still, now’s the time to plan ahead.

To that end, ProFlowers has you covered with a variety of beautiful bouquets for every pricepoint.



ProFlowers Deluxe All the Frills Bouquet in Teal-Dipped Vase

I love that you can choose the type of vase you get the flowers in – which means you can customize it for your recipient.


(I mean, how cool is this pretty teal-dipped vase above??) Many other online florists only offer the vase as part of the arrangement, and you’re stuck with what they’ve chosen. Major point in ProFlowers’ favor!

proflowers-box-proflowers-review-chic-stealsYou can specify delivery date at no charge (not a range-the exact day itself, which is awesome!) to make sure your recipient will be available on the date of delivery. When the flowers arrive, they’re boxed up in their nifty box with the card/greeting inside. The larger flower heads are even carefully wrapped to ensure perfection upon arrival! proflowers-box-inside-proflowers-review-chic-stealsThere are not 1 but TWO packets of flower life extend powder in the box, as well as detailed instructions for caring for your bouquet. (Other online stores don’t include instructions – kind of a no-brainer, no?)wrapped-bouquet-shipping-proflowers-review-chic-steals

Once in water, the flowers have a 7-day freshness guarantee, and the two packets of powder allow you to really extend their life. Mine are still alive at 15 days out!
Right now ProFlowers is running a couple promotions where you can get some great deals. And, you can get 25% off your order when you sign up for emails too.


You can also follow ProFlowers for updates, promotions, and shots of gorgeous, drool-worthy blooms here:

So what are you waiting for? Hurry up and book a beautiful bouquet for your mother, graduation, birthday, or just because.

7 Last-Minute Mother’s Day Gifts to DIY

DIYmothersdaygifts2013Mother’s Day 2013 is almost upon us…how are you doing for finding that perfect thing for that special woman in your life?  Flowers, chocolate, a handmade card expressing love, even a thoughtful gesture can go a long way in showing her how much she’s appreciated!  If you’re looking for something to give, here at the very, very last minute, are some Mother’s Day Gift ideas to DIY for that lovely lady:

Idea-Notebook-picture-pillows-0112-mdnDIY Vintage Photo Throw Pillow with Freezer Paper

Try using a treasured photo of Mom’s, family photos, or a snap of you + Mom together, for an extra-special way to preserve memories.

GardeniaBouquetDIY Paper Gardenia Bouquet

Real flowers wilt and die…a bouquet of these will last forever! Love the Scrabble tiles anchoring the bouquet, adding a personalized touch.

These are super-chic and can totally be customized for Mom with a coat or two of paint, glitter, or tape.

geo-tape-art81DIY Geometric Triangle Art

Or how about this pretty piece of Washi Tape Triangle Art for Mom? The end result is amazing and all you need is a little tape.

pleated-tote-bagPleated Tote Tutorial

This tote could be made in Mom’s favorite fabric (or even in fabric printed with family photos – see #1). Of course there are a ton of DIY Bag and Tote tutorials out there on the internet if you’re looking for a different style…this site offers a great roundup.

locket-and-oil1DIY Perfume Locket

Making perfume is surprisingly easy…and a solid perfume locket allows the wearer to carry it around all day, refreshing as needed.  You can get all your supplies at your local natural foods store, and fill a locket…or a necklace vial…or a ring…or a compact case…the possibilities go on and on!

decorative_party_traysDIY Chevron Patterned Party Tray

Find a pretty fabric – and glue it to a tray for a whole new look. (You could even decoupage it with Mod Podge instead of using an acrylic sheet to make it permanent!)

(Hint: If you’re looking for a low- or no-cost alternative gift, Moms also really appreciate a meal made for the family by their partner, kids taken care of and put to bed, and a long, uninterrupted bubble bath all their own…without any little floaty toys or random kidparts and splashes in it.  Just sayin.’ 😉

Hope you and all the mothers in your life enjoy a wonderful and relaxing Mother’s Day!
